Once a part of Team Fuqua, always a part of Team Fuqua. Welcome to a network of more than 19,000. As a member of the Fuqua family you inherit friends in the corporate world dedicated to helping Duke and you succeed in your job search. Plus, our faculty, research centers' staff, and board members are extremely supportive in connecting you to potential employers.
Consider every classmate a teacher. The diversity of your classmates adds another level of education to your experience. The variety of life, academic, and professional backgrounds enhances the culture of the campus and lends itself to innovative thinking. The more perspectives you're able to grasp, the better you'll be at solving tomorrow's business problems.
We only have one set of faculty, and they're the best in the world. The same professors that teach our MBA program will show you the ropes. Our faculty members are known for their accessibility and gladly share their experiences and knowledge with you. As you move through the program, you get to know our professors and look to them as mentors and friends.
Fuqua alumni remain a team long after graduation. Our network of more than 19,000 alumni is among the most supportive and responsive of any business school with many alumni returning to Fuqua to recruit for open positions. Get connected early. Unlike some schools that make you wait until you graduate to get access to the alumni directory, we give you access as soon as you start your program.
And, more than 40 alumni volunteers work with students to hone resumes and cover letters, while building interviewing skills. Participating in this Career Advisor for MMS (CAM) program are Fuqua MMS and MBA graduates, who work in diverse industries.
Alumni Career Advisor for MMS:
"Mentoring MMS students who are starting their career search provides a tangible way for me to contribute to the school. Through the Career Advisor for MMS (CAM) program, I provide resume, cover letter, and interview guidance to MMS students. It creates a unique mentoring relationship between MMS students and other Fuqua alumni." — Josh Cohen (Daytime MBA '07), Director, Business Development, TransLoc
